Thrillingly concentrated and unctuous Côte-Rôtie
On the nose, small red fruits, blackberry and floral violet aromas. Intensely aromatic, powerful but full of finesse. It is supple on the palate with balance between the finesse of the aromas and an explosive richness due to the concentration of the wine. Greatly expressive of the terroir.
